First, I saw these strange prints on my trails.
They don’t look like people prints and they’re certainly not from any animal I know.
I saw prints like these once, a long time ago.
And I never did figure out what they were.
I started to head home to get my Detective Dog hat and figure out this mystery when I came across another clue.
Hmmm. This stuff tastes kind of good. I wonder where it came from.
My person wouldn’t let me finish the stuff off – and I guess it would have destroyed all the evidence anyway – so I continued on my way to get my hat.
When I saw them.
The biggest dogs I have ever seen in my life!
And they were coming right at me!
They passed right by me on my trails.
And there were people riding on their backs.
My person better never try to ride on my back.
Oh oh. Here come some more of those dogs.
Hey, where are those big dogs going?
Do you believe it? They just walked by me.
And they didn’t even stop to say “Hi.”
Hey big dogs, come back here!
I’m not through with you yet.
This is terrible!
Not only did those big dogs just walk away…
They made a cactus try to hold me in place so I couldn’t follow them.
I’ll take care of those dogs alright.
They won’t get away with ignoring me on my own trails.
I’m sending the helicopter squad out to pick them up.

Oh Bongo, those are ponies! WOL!

Ponies? Is that some special kind of dog that I haven’t heard of?

What snooty big dogs. Maybe they have a lot on their minds as well as their backs? (Sorry about the ouchie! )
Oh, have you seen Budweiser’s big Clydesdale dogs in their Superbowl commercial? They are much friendlier to that little Golden puppy…maybe your big dogs were headed that way to check out that pup? He’s pretty cute…must have taken lessons from you!
January 29, 2014 at 2:23 pm
Karen, my person had to go check out that commercial. Those big dogs and that puppy were pretty cute. I guess I’ll have to train the big dogs on my trails.

My Knight in Shinning armour, go get ’em fella. That hat of yours will knock them for six.
They are just beautiful horses but I wonder why they are on your trail, it does seem odd ! Yuck fancy eating horsey poo..it will rot your stomach, but then I suppose it is only grass. When we had donkeys my dogs would eat the poo if I had not stopped them, its supposed to be very tasty, not that I have tried
January 29, 2014 at 2:25 pm
Patrecia, that poo was really tasty. I would have eaten it all if my person hadn’t stopped me. My person says we rarely get horses on my trails because the horse properties in our area are closer to other trails.

Gorgeous photos your person took Bongo.. Oooh I miss the southwest so much. So pretty! Sometimes them big dogs are afraid of dogs your size. My dog Marley spooked one of them big dogs before & it was kind of scary seeing a horse (or I mean, big dog) get so startled & start jumping around.
January 29, 2014 at 2:27 pm
Thanks Jackie. I tried to go spook those horses but my person wouldn’t let me. I almost got the leash away from her though.

What a very exciting day Bongo! I’m sorry that cactus bit you. The nerve! I wish I’d been there Bongo, I could have rounded up those critters and made them stay and say hi. and shared some of that yummy poo with you. ~Cooper the Cattledog

Cooper, I wish you’d been here too. We would have had a great time with those big dogs – and a great meal together.
January 29, 2014 at 3:53 pm
Oh Bongo, those big big dogs leave the best treats but Diane doesn’t let me enjoy them either. Ha! I show her though…I have my deer friends who leave me nice little nuggets every night.
January 29, 2014 at 9:45 pm
Lola, you are so lucky. We hardly ever get deer on my trails. My person says they usually hang out where there’s more water – and that isn’t my trails.
January 29, 2014 at 4:20 pm
Wow, B. Those dogs are HUGE! Did you bark at them? Did you get cookies for being good when they came by you?
Love and licks,
January 29, 2014 at 9:46 pm
Cupcake, I tried to go after them when they were leaving – but I came to the end of my leash. I think they might have played with me if my person had just let me near them.

I Ginger am envious! YOu have a helicopter? Oh, the uses I have for one of those.. watch out squirrels… watch out world.. domination would be mine!
January 29, 2014 at 9:47 pm
Ginger, you’ve got to come over here. We live not too far from the airport so I see helicopters flying around a lot. We could go up to the airport and
hijackborrow a few.
January 29, 2014 at 8:04 pm
Do you think those dogs get to stay in the house? They would need really big “jails”
January 29, 2014 at 9:48 pm
Patricia, they wouldn’t fit in my dog jail. That’s for sure.

Hope it’s not giving mom any ideas to buy you a saddle
January 30, 2014 at 12:17 pm
Lily, I sure hope she doesn’t get me a saddle – but I could use a backpack to carry extra treats.
January 30, 2014 at 8:24 am
I hope the cactus didn’t hurt you?
January 30, 2014 at 12:18 pm
Dalton, it was mostly stuck in my hair – well, maybe a little bit further. And my person pulled them out. I was lucky those prickly pear didn’t get me with their little pricklers. It takes tweezers to get that kind out.
January 31, 2014 at 2:22 pm
Oh, Bongo, ignoring the most famous dog of the world leaves their traces…sigh… 🙂
January 31, 2014 at 4:09 pm
Little Binky, they must not have recognized me. I tried to go tell them who I was but my person wouldn’t let me do it.
January 31, 2014 at 7:56 pm
Oh poor Bongo….you okay? Those cactus didn’t hurt you? Well….wow…..on your trails, those big dogs riding is allowed? Or is that one of the touristic events held in there? Have you ever seem them before?
January 31, 2014 at 8:34 pm
Kevin, this is the first time I’ve ever seen those big dogs – although one time I saw a miniature horse on my trails. The people probably live here, but they hardly ever bring their horses to my trails because there are other trails closer to where the horses are. Tourists can go horseback riding – I mean big dog riding- but they never come on my trails. Oh, and those cactus didn’t hurt me much. They only stuck in a little and my person pulled them out.
February 3, 2014 at 3:54 pm
Oh… those big dogs weren’t very kind, were they? I hope those prickles weren’t painful.
February 3, 2014 at 11:11 pm
Marina, I think those big dogs were trying to take over my trails. But I must have given them the message because I haven’t seen them again. And those pricklers weren’t stuck much in me. My person got them out easily.
